Humidors

The humid categories are:

  • Glass humidor.
  • Wooden humidor.
  • Leather humidor.

Wooden humidor is usually made from cedar in the interior and more seldom with mixture from muple tree and rose bush.

When we buy our humidor we supposed to make certain movements.

we clean it internally with a soft dry material.
we leave for 1-2 days in some space that is well aired .
we sweep it with a dry material.
we put it in a glass from wedge dyolised water and we put it for 30 seconds in the microwave (until it appears steam). Then we put it with attention into the humidor for a whole night.
we remove the glass and we sweep it by any chance humidity with a piece of sterilizated gauze.
Now, our humidor is ready.

Humid System

We continue with the humid system. After opening it with attention we will see a green piece from some material that resembles with sponge. In a bowl that hols the sponge we fill up to the middle with a mixture from glycol (special liquid that we find at the shops with cigars) and dyolised water in proportion 50-50 and we put in the sponge leaving it to pull the water for 2-3 thinly.

In the continuity him we remove also him we place in a clean towel until it drips a lot of liquids. If it remains wet but it also drips we put it in the appliance and the appliance into the humidor. We use the mixture of glycol of water only the first time that we are through the sponge. Now and beyond we add deyolised water a little each time when we see the humidity of hygrometer falling.

From the solution of glycol we put 2-3 drops only when we see the humidity falling very adruptly. (we do not place a lot glycol because it creates a crust in the sponge closing to its resource). We follow this process of dyolised water adding a little at the beginning when the humidity falls until the humidity of our humidor remains stable. (65 - 75%) If it has more we leave it open for a little until the donor falls.

Mark that the sponge needs change every 2 years.

When we place our first cigars it is normal to watch a change at the humidity usually falling.

Now in order to regulate the proportional hygrometer we make the following:

Into bowl that closes airtightly we place one spoonful of sweet salt and above the salt 1-2 drops of dyolised water and we soak it a little. We do not want it to become solution and sometimes we do not put less than 1-2 drops water (dyolised). We put it into the hygrometer and after 6 hours the humidity should be over 70-72%. With a screwdriver we put the indicator in the 70.

The best solution is a digital hygrometer that does not need anything and is more precitional.

Only dyolised water because the water of tap and bottling do certainly have micro-organisms that destroy the cigars.
Glass humidor wants daily control.
If it has a lot of humidity for somebody is because we open and leave it until the water evaporates a little.
We do not place metal parts of cigars of perfectly different flavours into the humidor because the cigar has bad organisms that absorb the smells and it will be perplexed by the flavours and the perfumes of cigars.
